Book Blogger Appreciation Week: Interview Swap!
This week is Book Blogger Appreciaton Week.
As I’m new to being an “official” book-blogger, and not just a blogger of all things, often including books, I decided to take part in this fun week of events.
Part of BBAW is an interview-swap.
I was fortunate to get to swap interviews with Ms. Jennifer from Jenn’s Bookshelves.
(You should check out her lovely and well-written blog, seriously.)
Q: Whats the first book memory you have?
A: My mother reading some of the Golden Book Classics to me. I still own them and read them to my children. My mom worked full time and often didn’t have a lot of time to read to me. So, she recorded herself on tape, reading a book to me. I wish I’d kept some of those tapes! It’s possible they exist, buried in a box somewhere.
Q: Favorite book of all time/Least favorite book of all time?
A: Yikes! There is no way I could mention just one favorite! I love all of Stephen King’s early works. He introduced me to the world of horror fiction and I’ve been a fan since. A few of my favorite classics include Jane Eyre and East of Eden. I read Jane Eyre in high school, and when I reread it years later I realized I didn’t appreciate what an amazing book it was. I read East of Eden with my book club. I absorbed it, I relished in Steinbeck’s writing.
I don’t have a least favorite book per se. If I don’t like a book, I either don’t read it, or stop reading it!
Q: Whats your guilty pleasure book?
A: Again, I don’t think there is just one book, but several. I recently discovered Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series. It’s not Pulitzer prize winning writing, but I love it. I’m also a huge fan of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, specifically on audiobook. I can’t get enough of Claire and Jamie!
Q: What book do you think needs to be made into a movie?
A: I would love to see THE PASSAGE made into a movie. Another series of books, which ultimately will be made into movies, is Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan’s The Strain series.
Q: What book are you most looking forward to?
A: Several! The first is the second in Del Toro’s Strain series, The Fall, which releases later this month. I’m actually reading it now. I simply love it! I’m a fan of Lee Child’s Reacher series. I just finished listening to 61 Hours and I can’t wait for the newest, Worth Dying For. I literally could go on and on!
🙂 This was a lot of fun, and next year I will definitely take part again!
